Yamaha IM Expands Intelligent Factory Capability


Reading time ( words)

Through its ongoing technology agreement with AEGIS, Yamaha IM announces the completion of a software milestone: the full integration of Aegis FactoryLogix software with Yamaha Programming PTools. This newly enhanced interface allows Aegis Software users the ability to create programs in FactoryLogix and directly hand them over to Yamaha's Programming Tool (PTool).

In making the announcement, George Babka, Sales General Manager for the SMT Business Group of Yamaha Motor IM America Inc., said, "The new interface with AEGIS NPI product FactoryLogix brings AEGIS and Yamaha IM's customers a big step closer to Industry 4.0 realization goals. This product will simplify and streamline our customers’ PCB assembly processes like never before."

With FactoryLogix, CAD/CAM information is processed as needed, then merged with a Bill of Material (BOM). FactoryLogix then reads in the Yamaha PTool Part Database and automatically matches part numbers and looks up package types to speed up the part-to-database connection. When complete, FactoryLogix hands the program, in Yamaha format, to Yamaha's PTools Software for optimization.

This functionality, along with Yamaha's state of the art Visual Editor Software, creates a board image and overlays part outlines so that a "Virtual Sticky Tape" board can be created. Board debug and verification can be done offline without taking production time away from the line, or using any components.

"In short, this new integration gives Yamaha the capability of communicating fully through NPI – giving our customers a path that can lead to full MES with lot level traceability on YAMAHA machinery, providing another solution for the truly Intelligent Factory. The customer is the ultimate beneficiary," Babka added.

CFX: The Next Step Toward the Future of Factories

05/07/2018 | Stephen Las Marias, I-Connect007
For the past two to three years, almost every exhibitor in almost every trade show focused on the electronics manufacturing industry has an "Industry 4.0 Compatible" sign in their booth. As of today, the best question to ask is, "Compatible with what?" There has really been no standard yet developed toward this goal, and Industry 4.0 has been just a buzz word.
